Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington and Oscar winner Russell Crowe square off on opposite sides of the law and on both sides of reality in this action-packed cyber-age thriller from the director of The Lawnmower Man.
Crowe is Sid 6.7 - Sadistic, Intelligent, Dangerous. He's a composite of some 200 personalities, each and every one a notorious killer. A virtual reality creation designed to put L.A. police officers to the test. But Sid isn't playing games anymore. He's escaped the bounds of cyberspace and is able to take a licking because he can regenerate his silicon-based body parts. Washington is Parker Barnes, a Los Angeles cop who once took the law into his own hands... and now carries the fate of the city in them. His job is to shut down the virtually unstoppable Sid. Virtuosity - it's the ultimate battle of bits and bytes, in the world of flesh and blood!
